One bite at a time

So I have been really looking at what I am eating, counting everything trying to balance good eating skills with low carb so I can still lose weight. My sodium intake is out of control. I think on top of the vit D issues, I am retaining water from the sodium. But my blood pressure has been so low, my doc says eat salt, don't worry about your sodium. Ugghh! I am going to reduce it, if I begin having any low blood pressure incidents like dizziness, i will see my doctor. This is what I ate yesterday and my ending totals:

Morning: 16 oz cup of coffee w/ creamer
Breakfast: 2 scrambled eggs w/ cheese no added salt or pepper
Snack; 1 oz beef jerky, slice of cheese
Lunch:1/4 chicken quesadillia on low carb tortilla w/ spoonful salsa/sour cream
Snack: 1 oz beef jerky
Dinner: Inside of subway club, no bread
Dessert: 1/2 slice angel food cake, topped with 2 sliced strawberries and splenda
snack: spoonful peanut butter
Cals Fat Cholest Sodium Carbs Sugars Fiber Protein
1,055 49g 592mg 3,599mg 58g 42g 6g 90g

I feel like I ate a balanced diet, the beef jerky is definitely going to have to go, my carbs aren't great for losing phase but they aren't bad either. I think considering some of the things I have gone through with my eating, I think I made good choices and I am proud of that. This is a lifestyle change for me and I will figure it out, one day at a time, one bite at a time.
